You’re Bored? Do these.

1. Clean your room – your parents say it, you hate it. But truthfully, if you are bored, take ten minutes and clean as fast as you can. The faster you go, the better you feel when you’re done. If that doesn’t do it for you, sit back and look at your progress, and try to compare your room to other people your age. My room is spotless, not because my parent tell me to, but because I can look at it and think “that’s right, I’m better than my friends because my room doesn’t suck.” I’m not neat at all, but just being productive with quick results can be satisfying. Even better, if you clean your room without having someone demand it of you, you realize that you’re the one in charge of how your room looks. Even if you don’t want to be honest with yourself, you probably feel good when your room is clean. Don’t screw yourself over just because you don’t think your parents should control how your room looks. Take the metaphorical wheel, clean it before they get a chance to tell you.

2. Do your laundry – Yeah, its lame. If you happen to be one of the few people who do like to do laundry, kudos to you. For the rest of us, we just hope it does itself. However, when you’re feeling bored, pop a load of laundry into the washer. It’s quick to start and once it begins you can say you’re being productive even if you just watch TV the whole time. Hell, I’m doing laundry right now. Not because I’m out of clothes or someone told me to, just because I know that if I do it myself when I have some spare time, then no one will yell at me to do it next week when I have better things to do.

3. Do Homework- If you’re in high school, do your homework ASAP. It doesn’t go away. It’s easy for me to say and really hard for you to do, but suck it up and get it over with.

4. Go make a friend- sounds cheesy but have fun with it. Go to the grocery store and high five some guy in the candy isle. I go to subway all the time and now I’m friends with the girl who makes my sandwich every day. I’m not an outgoing person by any means, but even if you’re shy a ten second adrenaline burst is all it takes to meet someone new. Introduce yourself to your elevator companions. Figure out what gets you in ‘the zone’ and use it like a tool. I got all red bull’d up on caffeine to ask a girl for her number because I know that when I’m hyper I can act without over thinking things in my head and getting nervous.

5. Write a book- Seriously, give it a shot. I’m doing it and it’s eating up the time wonderfully.

6. Challenge yourself to a game- Make up a quick game, with silly rules. Don’t do it at home, do it in public.
Guys- find a girl, convince her you need her number to stop the ‘aliens from attacking’. Don’t do It in a stupid way. “I need your number or aliens will attack!!” makes you a weird dude. Sit down across from them, and with a straight face explain to them that aliens are about to land to take you away and you need the phone number of someone close by in case you need to call for immediate help. She will know you are kidding (hopefully) and laugh. If you get her number, you win. If you don’t, then you’ve met a girl without a sense of humor and aren’t missing out on anything. You don’t lose either way.
Girls- Find a guy, make eye contact and stare as long as you can. Hopefully this will not only weird the guy out, it will make any friends he has with him uncomfortable as well. This means you win. If he stares back at you and laughs after a bit, you win. If he stares back with a straight face for more than about a minute, you should probably leave the area.
